The Reading and the lecture are both about salvage logging, which is a way to cope with problems related to damage of forests after fires or stormscauses. The author believes that there are several economical and natural advantages of this and he points some of them. The professor brings into question the claims made in the lecture. He considers that there is no great deal with this way of management, and also that it is ineffective and could cause serious problems in the long-term.
First, the author comes up with the idea that it is necessary to remove dead trees. It is mentioned that they could be used to make new places for growing more trees immediately. However, the professor argues that removing dead trees will not create better conditions and that in the future there will be a lack of nutrients in the soil due to the lack of humus from the dead tree species.
Second, the author states that insects which live in wood could increase in population and spread out causing an infestation. Meanwhile, the professor rebuts this argument by pointing out that insects have been growing at a large number in the wood for a hundred years without causing any complications. So, this is not that much badly.
Third, the author contends that salvage logging may help industries to raise their capital by benefiting them with jobs and more raw material (lumber). The professor, on the other hand, posits that the economic benefits will be small and will not last. He highlights that for recovering lumber, businesses will need to get some helicopters and other means, spending lots of money. And Finally, there will be just jobs for experienced outsiders, not for proper inhabitants.
